Summary: Before the separate incorporations of Wellfleet and Orleans, before the central focus of Eastham migrated to Bridge road and the eventual train depot, Samuel Treat was the long-term pastor of this region. He served both the English arrivals and the Nauset Natives. Understanding his life and ministry, we better appreciate our English pioneers and local Native Americans, and the 375th anniversary this year of the Eastham Congregational Society (now part of the Federated Church of Orleans). 


Bio: Tom Ryan was the vice-chair of the Eastham 400 Commemoration Committee, and the senior producer of 120 videos last year on the First Encounter of the Mayflower scouting party and the Nauset Natives, and on the meanings of that encounter for today.
